If you unscrew the section, what does the filler say?


Whatever it says, Amen.

As Ernst said, the model name is usually found on the filler housing. Could you post a picture of the pen with the barrel removed showing the filling mechanism?

I studied the filler housing, nothing written there except instructions. The pen, however, really does seem to be the Super 21, which I've heard is prone to hood shrinkage.

My 21 Super was one of the NOS 21s from the great Peyton Street Pens horde and it has the recessed clutch ring and an indented cap jewel. I believe these were mid 1960s 21 Supers.


Funny how some retail deals like that "live in history".


Back in '98 the first monochrome Garmin StreetPilot was $500. Staples had an internal corporate saboteur.  They were indiscriminately going into the corporate pricing program and marking items down to around .10 on the dollar. They marked the StreetPilot down to $139.99.  It hit some GPS forum about 7 in the morning, by 9 it had made it to the Long Distance (motorcycle) Rider's forum. These people ride 1000 miles For Dinner.  Needless to say IT hit the fan.

In about 24 hrs major GPS sellers had notified Garmin, apparently the price was So Low it violated Garmin corporate pricing policies and Garmin had directed all Staples to return ALL Garmin Streetpilots to Garmin. It took about 36 hrs before the news to kill the deal made it to all the stores. 


Just the LDR List managed to buy $73,000 dollars worth of StreetPilot's first.  I bought 3 myself, one for me, 2 for out of state friends. People still mention that deal now and then.


I sure people will remember the P-21 and Eversharp flex/stub hordes at PSP pens for awhile too.
